SEOUL, April 06, 2014 (AFP) - South Korean military said Sunday it had found an unidentified "drone" suspected to have flown from North Korea, following the discovery of two similar objects near the border in recent weeks.

The South earlier found two unsophisticated unmanned aerial vehicles - about one metre long, two metres wide and painted pale blue - that had crashed near the border with the North.

The two camera-equipped vehicles took hundreds of pictures - albeit of low quality - of border areas and the capital Seoul, including the presidential palace, according to the South's defence ministry.

The military found on Sunday another drone of similar design and size in the eastern county of Jeongseon, about 130 kilometres south of the heavily fortified border, Seoul's defence ministry spokesman said.
